The vines that produce this unique white Côtes-du-Rhône, made from 90% Viognier and 10% Roussanne, were planted in the early 1990s on the advice of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape enologist Noël Rabot. Included is a parcel of Viognier growing on a Mistral-swept terrace at 620 meters, which is the highest vineyard in all the Côtes-du-Rhône. In the glass, the wine has a limpid, delicate yellow-green color, with discreet honeysuckle and white peach aromatics. On the palate, the flavors echo the delicate nose (with the addition of pronounced ripe yellow plums seasoned with fine minerality). The lovely texture is seamless and refined, and the finish is lengthened by delicate bitterness rather than acidity.
